Short warm up, in a rush. Spent too long chatting s**t...

17inch pulls!
60 x 3
100 x 3
140 x 1 - add wraps
160 x 1
170 x 1
180 x F - on most of these i felt like the bar was drifting forward.
170 x 1
140 x 5

Front squats (clean 1st rep)
50 x 3
60 x 3
70 x 4
70 for 2 x 3

DB bench press with fat grips. Supersetted with squats.

And outta here.

Anyone else find it difficult to pull in their normal deadlift groove from blocks? 1st time I've done it really so its technically a PB.
Really felt like the bar was drifting out in front of me.

Mon 30th.

Burst water pipe down the road so we had to shut the gym. Tried some gymnastics instead. Got a new lad at the gym that does some. Did some handstands, head springs, l sits and stuff like that. Was pretty cool. Then we did a load of 1 ARM press UPS and some pistol squats. Push presses and benching tomorrow hopefully.

Alright mate, good luck with the training and comps.

Junction in Wakey is defo the best option for events training but if you're struggling for lack of equipment for your normal training then you should think about joining Bradford uni free weights room. It's dead basic but there's a power rack, squat stands some decent bars and more weight than you can shake a stick at.

Me and Milsy both train there and it's only 10/month so it'd hardly break the bank!

Then pissed about with some KB swings and some pull ups.

Mon 27th.

1 week till i go to india for 3 weeks. Backpacking so i think training will be limited to some gymnastic stuff and bodyweight stuff. I'm gonna try and do some yoga with the locals and see how i get on. But im thinking its gonna be 1 arm press ups and pistol squats for a few weeks.


Anyway,

Did some 1 arm bench pressing some pull ups and some KB swings. Did 8 rounds of 5 reps for bench and pull ups and 20 reps for swings. Bench with 32kg swing with 20kg.
Did some L-sits and handstands to finish.

Wed 4th april.

Had an easy week getting back into it, just a bit more volume and maybe up to like 70 or 80% intensity.

Today i did:

Warm up for 5 mins, foam rolling and a bit of skipping.

Hang power snatch
40 x 3
50 for 2 x 3

Deadlift
80 x 3
100 x 3
120 for 5 x 2

Single leg deadlift + pull ups
18 x 8(each leg) + 5 reps after a long hang to stretch
did 3 rounds of this.

then did some inverted rows and L-sits.

Should have the deadlift back to what it was in Feb after a few sessions, but even then, its still a long way from where it needs to be.
